Wow, I cannot believe how fast time has flown by. We have been off work for 10 days already and it has just flown right by.
We got home last Wednesday, just in time for our Church's revival with Linwood Smith. I was a little disappointed with the lack of interest from our church members, however, I feel like we had success.
We had two baptisms. Robin Sarver surprized her husband on his birthday by getting baptized; and their daughter, Hannah was also baptized. Pops performed the baptisms. It was a great evening.
We had Linwood up to the house for lunch one day and we all ate in the screen porch. He is a great guy, and loves the Lord more than anything.
On Saturday, all the Ryans got together for a picnic. We had a fabulous time. We got to see Heather again. We hadn't seen her in a long time. She looks good and she brought her boyfriend who we had never met. His name is Justin and he "buries people" for a living. haha
My boys came too, but they couldn't stay because of work so they didn't even get to eat. I hated that.
We did have a good time though.
Then Sunday, our annual PA Family Camp kicked off with a picnic at the campground at 3:30. Several of the out of town people showed up too. Then that was followed by 3 good sermons by 3 good preachers.
Our youth program really went wild this year. Both the boys and girls dorms were full and we had to set up tents. That is amazing.
Marvin Whiteman was doing our daily music. He is blind from birth and he is so good at music. Everyone loved him. So much so that he was already asked to come back again next year.
So Monday through Thursday we had 3 preachers each afternoon and then 3 again in the evening.
Each sermon was good. These men are very good at preaching the Word of God.
We had 2 women's sessions too.
It was so good to get to spend time with so many good church friends.
Some changes were made to make things run more smoothly and we have big ideas for the future also. But I am so excited about what is going with our Camp Meeting. I already can't wait until next year.
